EcoPlus: A Solid Resolution to a Slippery Problem

Ecoplus, Inc. markets a technology (U.S. Patent No. 7,384,562) for the disposal of foodservice and food production generated brown grease, or fats, oils and grease (FOG), ultimately producing a high quality alternative fuel product.

The EcoPlus process technology converts sticky fats, oils and grease along with incorporated food matter into a solid, granular material. The granular material may be used as a soil amending agent in agricultural applications, and also, the solids have a green fuel value with a BTU content similar to coal. The product was large scale burn tested and can be used as an adjunct fuel, often with little or no significant modification to feed system or materials handling protocols. Some potential end users are:

  • Combined Energy and Waste Heat Plants
  • Conventional Steam Plants
  • Cement Plants

The EcoPlus technology has been used in commercial application since 2002 at a fully permitted plant in Charlotte, North Carolina. The plant processes the oils and grease from over 1,300 grease producers in the Southeast at a rate of over 200,000 gallons per month.

Whether you are a City, County, or Agency Manager or Director; Engineer or Consultant in wastewater issues; a Wastewater Plant Operator; or a Regulator, the EcoPlus system is a proven solution for your problems with FOG disposal. Plus, the final product’s value as an alternative fuel is a valuable bonus.

A Quick Profile on FOG

In the past few years there have been a number of high-profile print articles on the damage and expense of kitchen-derived grease congealing in our sewers. The waste grease enters our sewage systems and, like cholesterol in arteries, accumulates inwardly and ultimately closes them.

As much as 40% of sanitary and combined sewer overflow to the surface environment has been attributed to pipes clogged with grease, contributing to thousands of sanitary sewer overflows (or SSOs) in our cities and towns. These overflows result in pollution to rivers and streams, compromise recreational and drinking-water supplies, and impact our groundwater.

In 2001, Barry Newman, arguably the premiere feature writer for the Wall Street Journal, crafted an article on grease in New York that became a focus piece for an entire industry sector that is working to provide efficient products and services for the collection, removal, and treatment of grease waste. His thesis is, essentially, that we are at war with grease.

So explore the EcoPlus System for FOG Management. This war with grease can be won. And one of the rewards of victory is a Clean Fuel Product.
